Louis Dreyfus plans hydrogen SOV

In collaboration with Salt Ship Design, the French shipping company Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LDA) has developed a design for an offshore supply vessel that can run on liquid hydrogen.

In addition to Salt Ship Design, stakeholders such as equipment suppliers, classification societies, flag authorities and fuel suppliers were also involved. Now Louis Dreyfus Armateurs is presenting a “complete SOV concept based on liquid hydrogen”. [ds_preview]

The offshore supply vessel is said to be able to operate 95% of the time with zero carbon emissions, where the only emission from the vessel during standard operation would be water. “This would have a huge positive impact on emissions associated with offshore wind farm operations, avoiding the release of around 4,000 tons of CO2 per year. The ship will be able to accommodate up to 90 technicians and spend 14 days at sea.

“At LDA, it is our constant ambition to lead the maritime industry in the energy transition and offer innovative maritime solutions to our customers. We are convinced that H2 as a fuel is one of the most important factors in reducing the impact of the shipping industry in the coming years and achieving the challenging carbon emission targets for the entire industry,” said the shipping company.

Louis Dreyfus Armateurs is looking at various ways to decarbonize the fleet. The shipping company recently put a RoRo ship with sails into operation.
